speaker john boehner held his own meeting on the fiscal cliff negotiations. this is close do 10 minutes. >> good afternoon, everyone. the president traveled to pennsylvania to visit a small business today to talk about the fiscal cliff. unfortunately, it's the president and members of his own party who were proposing that we let many small businesses, as in hundreds of thousands of them, go over the fiscal cliff. simply put, that's why we don't have an agreement as yet. they said yesterday this is not a game. i used to be a small business owner. small business owners are regular men and women from all backgrounds who, in today's economy, are facing challenges on a daily basis. and the president's tax increase would be another crippling blow for them while doing little to nothing to solve the bigger problem here, which is our national deficit and our national debt. this debt doesn't exist because we don't tax small businesses enough. it exists because washington continues to spend too much. raising taxes on small businesses instead of taking a balanced approach that also cuts spending is

to this in 2008 i thought john mccain waged a terrible campaign. i thought he didn't expose the challenger barack obama. i thought he was afraid and intimidated by him. i think i was wrong about that. i don't think john mccain is a guy that backs down and i think i was wrong but i kept questioning why don't you bring it to him. bring it to him. here is a guy who voted president, no accomplish. s in the senate. nothing on his resume out of the ordinary. just let him have it and he wouldn't. the last four years the only leader i have seen in america and mccain goes out of the ideology. he goes against his own party when he feels it is mccain. i mean, mccain is the guy that wants the truth about libya. mccain is the guy who wants to solve the immigration problem. mccain is the guy. i think mccain is the best leader in the country right now. and mccain should be man of the year. go ahead, powers. >> i don't really see that he has worked across party lines with other people. by your own standard what's his major accomplishment? >> he has brought to light a lot of corruption. has introduced legislation
